Who is is enjoying "Pond Life"?

In case you weren't aware, the BBC is releasing a mini-episode every day this week leading up to Saturday's premiere of Doctor Who, Season 7. They are titled "Pond Life" and are just a minute or so in length, showing life between last year's Christmas special and the upcoming season. We've been told they are important to the plot, so it's worth checking them out! Today's was especially funny.

Part 1
Part 2

I love the idea of the Doctor continuing to drop in on the Ponds. I hate the knowledge that soon he'll be leaving them too behind. Why can't he just have some companions that stick around in his life for more than two years???

That first one was, uh, risque... probably more risque than anything I've seen on DW, that I can remember. (Stopped watching it after that.) Just a suggestion, and no offense, but perhaps you might want to mention that, since IIRC you have some younger readers on here.

Eh, there's been stuff like that in Doctor Who before. I wasn't happy about it, but I didn't think it was unusual enough to warrant a warning. I try to place warnings where I can, but ultimately I can't be responsible for warning everyone about everything they might find objectionable in stuff I like and recommend.

Fair enough. I didn't like the thought of a younger reader to click on it and then be scandalized; however, a non-Doctor Who fan is unlikely to click on it anyway, and presumably someone who's watched the series would be somewhat prepared.

Thanks for understanding, MD. :)
